    My website is It is Xenforo based, just like your forum.

    I am interested in your Managed SSD VPS Hosting. I was looking at the SSD-2 plan. I have some questions:

    - I anticipate hundreds, even thousands of concurrent users. Do you think this plan is a good match for this?
    - Your datacenter is located in Texas. I live in Ontario, Canada and so do most of my users. Is this okay for Canadian users? Will we notice a performance difference.
    - I currently use cPanel. Will you be able to migrate all files/threads over to your service?

    With my current host, my site doesn't run as fast as I'd like. On google page speed test my site has a 66 on mobile and 80/100 on Desktop. It's okay but it mentions to reduce server response time (ideal is below 200ms and I get 600ms). I think the SSD will help with the speed.

    We want to launch our site very soon, so I look forward to a response

    Hey Domski, thanks for your interest in KnownHost.

    SSD-2 should handle hundreds on a XF forum just fine. If you get into thousands you very well may need more RAM so you might need a higher plan for that but upgrades are seamless.
    Round trip times from Ontario and TX are <100ms so this should pose no problem at all.
    Absolutely :)

    SSD will certainly help server response time.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.
